The Launchkey Mini MK2 by Novation is a 25-key USB MIDI controller that features pre-mapped control for many popular DAWs. It also has 16 velocity-sensitive, multi-color, backlit trigger pads that can be used to launch loops, samples and more. The controller is compatible with Mac, PC and iPad.
Additionally, the Launchkey Mini is equipped with 8 assignable knob controls that can be used for controlling mixer functions, effect parameters and more. It makes use of Novation's pre-mapped templates that allow for automatic control of popular DAWs such as Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Logic and others.
The package also includes a software suite that includes Ableton Live Lite, a 4GB Loopmasters sample library that includes royalty-free loops and one-shots, plus three fully multisampled Simpler-based instruments for Ableton Live 9 (Piano, Rhodes, Hammond Organ), as well as software versions of Novation's classic analog synths, the Bass Station and the V-Station.
You can also download the free Launchkey and Launchpad apps for producing and performing with the Launchkey Mini in tandem with your iPad.
- In addition to Mac and Windows compatibility, Launchkey Mini connects directly to your iPad with the Apple Camera Connection Kit (not included) and it's powered by the iPad with no need for batteries or an additional power supply
